Fall Into the CFDA Gap


The Gap and CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund debuted its 4th annual, limited-edition designer collaborations of Men’s and Women’s apparel and jewelry yesterday in a special pop-up shop at Gap’s concept store on Fifth Avenue in New York. This year’s featured designers were CFDA 2009 winners Monique Pean, Patrik Ervell and Sophie Theallet, who reinterpreted Gap’s iconic classics in their own signature styles. Theallet offered a range of flirtatious, habotai silk dresses in her famous color block pattern, Ervell boiled down the essence of menswear to offer classic button-down shirts with his signature mother-of-pearl buttons and blazers constructed from unrefined silk yarn, and Pean created 12 pieces of eco-friendly, fine jewelry out of naturally shed buffalo horn, coconut, buri twine and organic cotton. The collection is only available at the pop-up store and prices range from $38 for a wooden bracelet to $300 for silk dresses.
